This June sees issues #1 and #2 of Secret Empire: Brave New World. Issue one is written by Paul Allor, Jeremy Whitley and Nick Kocher, featuring art by Brian Level, Diego Olortegui and Will Robson. Issue #2 features art by Brian Level, Tana Ford and Juan M. Frigeri. Covers art is done by Paulo Siquera and colorist Marcio Menyz.
In conversation with the Nerdist, Paul Allor said his series’ story:
“will give you a deeper understanding of how Captain America’s oldest allies are dealing with the strange new world order. It definitely weaves into the events of the main book in some interesting ways. Basically, Brian, Charles and I are cooking up a story that will deepen your understanding of this brave new world, while also hopefully serving as a tense and fantastic story of its own.”
“For the Invaders story, we’re not recasting any particular tales from the Marvel Universe, but we are drawing on the deep history that exists between these characters,” Allor added. “These guys were all there at the very beginning of the Marvel Universe. They fought together, they sacrificed, they formed friendships that have lasted several lifetimes. And now one of them has taken over the world. Our story will be dealing with how the others react to that, in sometimes very different ways, and how their long history together plays a part in their actions of today.”
Stay tuned, kids..
